Hugh Myddelton House Care Centre in Enfield
Hugh Myddelton is a very friendly care centre in Enfield, close to Southgate, located in a quite residential area. There are useful transport links into central London via the underground, which is 10 minutes walk away, as well as good bus links on the main road. Southgate boasts a Marks and Spencer food hall as well as an Asda supermarket, both convenient for residents’ shopping. The main shopping street is also close by.
The nursing home has its own minibus, which is extensively used to visit stately homes and gardens; residents are encouraged to suggest venues of their choice. We have a cookery club once a week and a gentleman's club (sorry, ladies: no entry permitted) where male residents can discuss anything manly, facilitated by a male member of staff. We like to support reading and to this effect a reading club is a regular event, discussing the latest books and poems.
Our staff are highly trained in all aspects of nursing care. We cater for elderly frail nursing clients and their complex needs as well as people who live with dementia who enjoy the supportive environment of our Memory Lane Community in safety and comfort. The home also has a small unit for young people with physical disabilities.
We would like to welcome you to visit us for a trial lunch or stay, and see for yourself our dedication to excellent elderly care. All food is freshly prepared by our chefs on a daily basis and we cater for special diets on request. Please call us - we are happy to discuss your requirements for respite, permanent or rehabilitative care.
Types of care
The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.Read more

Hi, my name is Sam, and I am the General Manager here at Hugh Myddelton House. Welcome to our website!
Prior to joining Barchester, I worked in the NHS for over 20 years, where I held various clinical and managerial positions. In 1996 I graduated from Brunel University with a Masters in Counselling and focused on clinical interventions for clients with depression and anxiety. Since then, I have combined a strong, hands-on, direct care approach with my managerial responsibilities.
In 2014, I left the NHS as Deputy Director for Clinical Services Delivery in the Behavioural and Developmental Clinical Academic Group at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, where I led a number of initiatives in clinical interventions, policy and procedures in Forensic Psychiatry. In August 2014, I was appointed as the Hospital Director at Alpha Hospital Woking (later Cygnet Woking Hospital), a CAMHS and Adult secure services.
As a Registered Nurse and a General Manager, I am passionate about delivering high-quality care to those we support, and I enjoy working within a team that can make such a positive difference to the lives of residents and those we work with.Get in touch Meet my team
